Oh, boy how wrong this journalist was in less than one year!
"Russell M. Nelson, the new leader of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, isn't expected to move the church in major new directions, church members and activists said Tuesday."https://www.nbcnews.com/news/religion/noted-heart-surgeon-russell-nelson-unlikely-transform-mormon-church-new-n838216
Russell has made Mormons more socially updated with ministering. He has brought old and young men together in a unified quorum. He has giving sister missionaries leadership rolls over themselves. He has completely de-ick-ified The Temple Initiatory. He has reduced the time people have to attend church and he has completely nullified this meme.https://www.amazon.com/Cant-Im-Mormon-Funny-Tshirt/dp/B075MVGNF1

Great convo starter and fits well."
And after all, how could the journalist doubt Nelson. He is a mover and a shaker in the world!
"President Nelson is in the Who’s Who in the World, Who’s Who in America, and Who’s Who in Religion—meaning he was important enough to be listed as one of the most influential people in the world."https://www.lds.org/youth/article/11-things-you-didnt-know-about-president-nelson?lang=eng
Incidentally, the fact that the "Who's Who in the World" came from lds.org gave me pause. I mean I was taught "in but not of" and here they are promoting him like a candidate for high office. He already got the job. This kind of sycophantic fawning has always bothered me. I can imagine it has been the stock on many shelves like it was on mine.
